“Coding is everywhere, in every industry, and in every piece of technology that we use”

Sharing our passion

As experienced educators, we founded Discover Coding in Edmonton to share our enthusiasm and experience with coding.

As parents, our goal has always been to set our kids on the path for future success. That is why we started creating coding and technology programs to teach our own children.

We quickly realized that if our kids enjoyed it so much, other children will love it too!

We decided to help more kids develop essential skills to be successful in tomorrow’s digital economy. This is why we created comprehensive and fun programs designed to grow children’s interest in coding and computers.

Empowering tomorrow’s leaders

At Discover Coding, we believe that every child should
have a chance to learn about algorithms, computers
and apps creation.

In our programs we guide students through the
fundamentals of computers, game design and coding.
We teach creative problem solving, critical thinking, and
collaboration.

By providing essential 21st century skills, our goal is to
unlock the door to so many future opportunities

Encouraging kids to be makers rather than just consumers of technology
